Silverado Trail starts from Maple Springs Road
just a short distance east of the parking area. The trail steadily climbs up the ridge between Silverado and Ladd Canyons via a series of switchbacks that ease the grade of the climb significantly. Runners will enjoy ever nicer views with the climb. The trail is not shaded and winds its way up though sage environments and between sandstone bedrock outcrops.
